Putting a new spin on the classic and often impersonal steakhouse model, father and son team, Antonio and Mario Cerra, have opened PADRE FIGLIO, a new, welcoming Italian Steakhouse on the far East side of Manhattan. PADRE FIGLIO is offering an original menu, impressive ambience and genuinely warm service. Taking their hospitality experience and hands-on approach from running their successful, ten year old Midtown Manhattan, Italian neighborhood restaurant, Da Antonio (157 East 55th Street),the charismatic Cerra duo is excited to be starting fresh. With highly experienced Executive Chef Alberto Argudo (Campagnola, Il Mulino NYC) leading the kitchen, PADRE FIGLIO's menu is sure to please all palates with its vast selection of top quality Italian meats, superb Seafood selections, in addition to traditional Southern Italian (Neapolitan & Sicilian) fare. Located near the U.N. and Millennium UN Plaza Hotel, PADRE FIGLIO is the perfect dining destination for locals and visitors.
Padre Figlio is a great restaurant with delicious food and an awesome atmosphere. I shared the porterhouse which was juicy and cooked to perfection, along with some of the best baked clams I have ever tasted. I recommend you try them. If you really were planning on trying this place out I found a deal that lasts til tomorrow at (halfoffdepot.com) where you get $40 worth when you pay only $18. Check it out....
Rating 5 Star Plus!!! Prior to my trip to New York, I went online to find a really superior restaurant away from the popular tourist traps. I cannot tell you just how much Padre Figlio exceeded my expectations. The food, personal service and atmosphere were all excellent. I carried the restaurant's business card to the concierge at the Marriott Marquis. They thanked me and said they love to get personal recommendations from their guests and enjoy passing them on.

In the presence of professionals
There is something about Padre Figlio, which just tells you they know what they are doing. It starts with the hostess, who greets you by name even though you have never been there before and have not announced yourself. The Maitre D’ proceeds to announce the voluminous specials of the day, including the ingredients and the method of preparation…just so.
We were not interested in just beef, I wanted to see what the chef can do and even this jaded New Yorker was impressed. Some of us started with a wonderful tricolor salad topped with slivers of Romano cheese. I had a pickled eggplant and mushroom mélange wrapped in radicchio with gobs of freshly made buffalo milk mozzarella, still warm and silky smooth. Ah…yes
Pasta is the reason for Italy’s existence and my judgment is strict and unforgiving. I am not sure what they called my dish. It was a variation of Spaghetti Matricana. Home made spaghetti perfectly al dente, with pancetta (unsmoked bacon), onion, and garlic with slices of filet mignon in an excellent tomato sauce topped with ricotta. The serving was so large, I cancelled my next course. Also at the table was home made lobster ravioli with large chucks of lobster and a perfectly grilled mediterrain sea bass.
It’s a rough life, but someone has to do it and I am volunteering for your share at Padre Figlio.
Dinner for four was $ 250 with a tip. But I noticed that they have a limited menu prix fixe dinner at $ 35. I am definitely going back to try it
